Current Maintenance Pack
------------------------
Each item listed in this section describes a feature, enhancement, or change
that comprises this Maintenance Pack. Please read this section thoroughly to
understand the contents of this update.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET1238098
Associated Primary Etrack = ET1215629
Titan cases: 290-934-270

Description:
A change has been made to increase the maximum memory size for all
AIX executables except for those linked with an ld, and those compiled
in 64 bit. This change was made to address a core dump issue found in
nbnos on AIX master servers.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Maintenance Pack History
------------------------

This section contains an accumulative list of all Maintenance Pack information
contained in previous releases.

=============
NB_ENC_60_6_M
=============
Etrack Incident = ET1172601

Description:
When running SELinux on a zSeries platform, the operating system would not
load some of the shared libraries. A changed was added to build with -fPIC.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



=============
NB_ENC_60_5_M
=============
Etrack Incident = ET932016 ET988979 ET1002606

Description:
Buffer overflow areas have been identified and corrected in daemons that
run on Veritas NetBackup master, media, and client servers. Successful
access to a vulnerable Veritas NetBackup server and the ability to
successfully execute arbitrary code could potentially result in
unauthorized access with elevated privileges on a system.



=============
NB_ENC_60_4_M
=============
Etrack Incident = ET633304 ET578650 ET618672 ET773566 ET775876 ET794562 ET795366
ET796405 ET798900 ET801103 ET803062 ET803697 ET806035 ET819067 ET819053 ET828445
ET828682 ET804898 ET836523 ET839447 ET837074 ET834150 ET844425

Description:
bpinst was unable to push the Windows AMD64 (x64) Encryption deliverables
because of a missing version field in version_crypt.txt. By adding this
field in version_crypt.txt, bpinst now successfully pushes the Encryption
deliverables: bpkeyutil.exe, ciphers.txt, and version_crypt.txt. With
this fix, a key can now be generated on the client that allows the
encryption job to complete successfully.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Etrack Incident = ET784650

Description:
NetBackup communication between components that were separated by a
firewall did not work. For instance, when a master server was behind the
firewall and a media server was outside the firewall, all communication
from the master server had an internal host address that was not accessible
from outside systems.

This is the same when clients and other services are in question.

Additional Notes:
To activate NAT address replacement, systems outside of the firewall should
have the FIREWALL_IN parameter specified in their bp.conf/registry.

Format: FIREWALL_IN=hostname1,nat_address1|hostname2,nat_address2|...

Where: <hostname> is the name of the host system that needs to be accessed
and <nat_address> is the actual NAT address for the firewall to do
forwarding.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



=============
NB_ENC_60_2_M
=============

Etrack Incident = ET497175

Description:
Added support for the new PC-x64 client type.
